We spent this weekend on a whirlwind trip through New England, which entailed (in order): a flight into Providence, a night with friends and their beautiful children in the Boston area, a wedding in Cape Cod, and a babyshower on the New Hampshire border. But no trip to--or in the case, merely through--Boston would be complete without a stop at Anna's. And I can't believe we fit it in, but we did just that. Though this did result in a very close call catching our return flight, it was entirely worth it.This is not the first time I have written about my all-time favorite burrito joint so I won't repeat the basics. What I will say is I have never found a fresher and tastier burrito value anywhere else, ever.
The prices range from $4-7 and the choices include (among other things) flavorful carnitas and a selection of fresh chopped and grilled vegetables such as carrots, corn, red/yellow/green peppers, eggplant, onions zucchini, and squash.
While the burritos are not especially photogenetic, the melding of flavors is perfect. And the more I think about why I like Anna's burritos more than Chipotle, I think the key is both the way they steam the cheese and the tortilla together and the homemade hot sauce. The salsa and pork-fat rice don't hurt either.
For fountain diet coke fanatics in the area, the Porter Square location in Cambridge has in my estimation the best diet coke.
